Excellent time there when I was taking part in the International Space Settlement Design Competition.
The free breakfast was pretty good. Much better than expected, it is a little boring and repetitive but since its included free into the price of the room it is extremely good.
Rooms were quite large and spacious, air condition which worked, clean bathroom and shower, regularly cleaned rooms, nice comfortable beds, it was just a really nice experience. TV's were good, the hotel had plenty of channels! Air con is always cool, sometimes even a little too cold!
In the hotel itself, there is only your TV in your room, the pool and jacuzzi onsite for entertainment. The pool is a little small for actual swimming, but for relaxing and going for a splash in the pool to cool you down, it is perfect. Also, the Jacuzzi is on a timer which is a shame as it bubbles for about 10 minutes and then needs a 30 minute rest period before it would turn on. Near-by there aren't a load of things to do, but it is better than nothing. Within walking distance there is a putt putt theme park which is aimed at Kids and young teens (16 and under), also there is a small retail centre and a bunch of shops with restaurants nearby, most notably a Chinese Buffet which isn't bad at all and quite good value for money, and a IHOP. Close by there is the Johnston space centre (costs roughly $15) which isn't bad at all, then there is Kemah board walk (costs roughly $25) and also the Bay brook mall (costs roughly $13). It is huge. All these places were close and cheap to get too all below $25 each way.
Staff were amazingly helpful, very pleasant and always ready to help. Whilst we were out there they would give us taxi numbers, help us book them and even recommend drivers. Unfortunately, there was a taxi pricing scam and we were targeted and we informed the help desk and they helped us clear up the scam. Also, there is a lovely receptionist named Samantha from Mitcham! I kept on forgetting her name, even though she helped me out so much! She is a dear; definitely one of my favourites from the staff we met! In General they were all so helpful and lovely all the time.
Overall, out of 10 it gets 8/10 for me! Much more pleasant than expected.
Thanks again for making my time in Texas so pleasant!
